christel nani webinar 3/14: chakra first aid

Don’t be mean in 17


Listen up world. Did I mention that I LOVE NEW YORK! Okay, maybe I’m slightly biased because that’s where I fell in love for the first time, learned to drive and had some very good and interesting times! But I’m so excited because New York decided [yes, New Yorkers can be a bit ego-centric] that KINDNESS is the theme for 2017. The slogan goes, “don’t be mean in seventeen.”

I’m thrilled because our last Positivity class of 2016 was about finding your theme for 2017, and each participant is starting the new year with a personal theme. You know I don’t do resolutions because, well, because I don’t do them! But themes set an energy for the year. It’s a way to bring in what you need or want, like love, adventure, making better choices, or simply owning your inner gifts and talents. What a way to put your stamp on your new year!

I always suggest to my students that they find a visual representation of their theme to keep that energy flowing all year. I know one woman who will be getting a framed picture of Captain America, and another who is willing to “go for it.” I am so happy for all of you!

Not to worry, there is still time to identify and own your theme for 2017, but if you are still drawing a blank, feel free to use the New York theme of “kindness.” I have a kindness pillow that I use every day. Oh, so subtle!

Good Vibes Only

Interesting, might not be your first adjective when reflecting on this past year. For some of you battling a serious health issue has been difficult, time consuming and at times feeling like an overwhelming and losing battle. Healing your heart after divorce, ending friendships, and death while painful and disruptive has turned your life upside-down, but is also a testament to your resilience and determination to get up, shake off the dust, and take a chance to trust again, love again, and be willing to share your life with others. But, why bother?

People ask me all the time, why bother; isn’t it easier to die, or simply pull in and protect ourselves from future hurt? Perhaps, but what about our agreement to care for one another, care for our planet and care for all the innocents of our world? Who will extend themselves for their sake?

Yes, that agreement is an inherent part of us; we agreed when we came in to this world to watch out for others, to open our hearts to others, and to consider the good of the many, not of the one or few. Your soul made that agreement when you accepted the gift of life and were born.

Some have the tools and use them for this mission and some are learning how to be a part of the extended family called “each other.” In each case, the first step is always the same: a requirement to look beyond ourselves, to see other people, to see their needs, their pain, their longing for connection.

Once you are willing to look beyond your little world, synchronicity will come in to play and you will find a way to extend yourself; and it doesn’t require going to a foreign country of atrocities.

The crux of the matter is that we simply need to begin to care, we need to begin to forgive, we need to begin to choose to step out of our stories and beliefs that don’t serve us. It’s those small every day choices that change us; it doesn’t have to be the big spiritual wallop that turns our lives upside down.

Heidi Klum from Project Runway says, “you are either in, or you are out.” I pray for you to be in and help bring positivity, empathy, compassion and care to each other. You can wake up on January 1, 2017 with a new mindset. You can replace one negative thought with a positive one each day forward. You can make a difference in the level of positivity in our world just by the way you think.

Let’s add good vibes to our world. Let’s look beyond ourselves. Let’s choose to grow and sing and love and expand as spiritual beings. And let’s heal. Remember the biggest impediment to healing emotional wounds is being right. Waiting for an apology, amends or validation can cost you the best years of your life just like in the movie “Groundhog Day” with Bill Murray. Stuck in a hell of his making, his life didn’t get better until he made the decision to change. Most significantly, he chose to notice others and not just himself.

January 1st can be your miraculous day that changes our world for the better so we can reach that tipping point of positivity.

Love and Peace to all,

Christel Nani Adventure Retreat: Healing Hidden Stress

Healing Hidden Stress: June 22-26: Adventure Retreat

Christel Nani Adventure Retreat: Healing Hidden Stress
Christel Nani Adventure Retreat: Healing Hidden Stress
This Adventure Retreat will be an opportunity to reflect on your values, to set a life direction based on what is truly important to you, and to develop an intuition and wisdom based guidance system.

Learn the latest tools from Positive Psychology to build inner strength and increase your ability to bounce back from life’s setbacks.

Practice techniques from Energy Medicine that build your immune system and end energy drains.

The adventure part is kept easy and fun, and we always find a way to accommodate all ability levels. Of course Christel always has a bit “extra” outside of the normal class schedule for those of you willing to challenge yourself just a bit more…

Take some “me time” for life-changing personal insights, laughter, exercise and of course, Christel’s hidden surprises. Challenge yourself to stretch a little, whether it’s climbing to the top of Bald Mountain, rafting, parasailing, horseback riding, or a quiet and easy hike to meditate on the motivation of your recent choices.

Mornings begin with Christel’s coffee ritual to set positive intentions for yourself and others as you inhale the beauty of your surroundings. Hands on healing is taught both in the classroom and outdoors, as you share your journey with like-minded seekers.

Location: The Christel Nani Healing Center for some of our classes and on the walking trails around Sun Valley for the others. Our schedule is filled with activities, classes, group meditations and visualizations, laughter, and of course good food.

Tuition is normally $995 but we are so excited to have this retreat at the Center that we are reducing the tuition to $595, a savings of $400! This includes your tuition, welcome dinner Wednesday night and a farewell lunch on Sunday.

Any questions, please call Rebecca Grace, Psy.D. at 760-310-9085.

PS. Don’t forget about our safari adventure in Kenya. We will be taking donations of gently used sneakers and classroom supplies directly to the children. Give us a call to learn more.

March Birthday wishes made me smile

March Birthday Funnies

 A hearty thank you for all the birthday wishes sent my way and know that I am paying those good wishes forward to all who are also born in March! Of course, I especially enjoyed the surprises and humorous nurse cards. I love to see all your playful child energy; it keeps me laughing.

Lots of new classes coming up and of course our favorite adventure retreat. May I suggest that you get plenty of sleep before you come, because as you know, we always seems to find some surprises to share with you that are above and beyond the curriculum!

Know that on the first day of Spring, I stood an egg on it’s pointy end to capture the magic of the season for each of you. It’s time to come out of your deep sleep and blossom with beauty, the beauty that comes from living your true energetic blueprint.

Now it’s time for you to receive and accept those energies.

See you soon,

rewire your brain for happiness

Rewire your brain for happiness

We had such a fantastic Positivity Plexus class and wanted to share some of the insights to help you build your resiliency and positivity.

Rewiring your brain to be stronger, happier and naturally more buoyant is actually possible with consistent effort. As we taught in class, a negative brain can be both addictive and successfully treated.

Healing begins with awareness so we had each student identify their particular negative thought addiction and found that in general they fell in to one of three categories: Punishment, Bullying or Judgement or “P, B and J.” These negative thoughts can drain your energy system, often first noticed in a tightness or uncomfortable feeling in the third chakra or solar plexus area.

I surprised our students by reading a particular strength in their energetic blueprint that they could use to overcome negative thoughts. In each case, the strength is innate and easily accessed.

Some examples from our class include: “I notice and appreciate beauty,” “I pray easily,” “I feel light and can put it into dark places,” “I do ritual and ceremony,” “I can see both sides of an argument,” “I nurture others and create safety,” and “I can take risks that others can’t.”

You too, have been blessed with gifts that can easily lift you out of negative thinking and make you feel instantly better. What comes easily and naturally to you? Do you have a knack for fixing things, or persevere when others quit? Are you able to see multiple options in a situation where others see only black and white? Do you love to learn, create, appreciate nature or connect with animals?

Follow a path to positivity that is special, unique and EASY for you. Replace negative thoughts by doing something that you are naturally good at, while at the same time increasing your confidence and self-esteem.

Remember that we are hard wired with a brain that wants to be happy and a spirit that is strong.

Blessings for all including yourself

An update from Rebecca Grace and the San Diego Healing Weekend:
“We don’t know how she does it, but Christel just keeps out doing herself! The latest set of events in San Diego over three days proved that her healing gifts, under the direction of the Holy Spirit, just keep expanding and deepening.

Using a new technique that was shown to Christel earlier this winter, she taught a magnificent workshop on Healing the Grief in Your Heart. This workshop gave people the opportunity to heal trauma and grief that had up to that time seemed stuck and endless in its pain. It was quick, thorough and effective, leaving people amazed at the changes they felt in their hearts.

Two more workshops followed: “Being Wounded and Growing up Anyway” and “Archetype Wheel Readings.” We worked on healing wounds around childhood pain: being abandoned, bullied, betrayed, violated and victimized and transformed them by placing an angelically given statement over the wound followed by an action plan that was energetically read by Christel. Amazing!

The wheel readings were profound and precise readings around a particular question each person selected for themselves. This was the first time Wheel Readings were done for people who had not yet taken the Archetypes Workshop. We used the big four archetypes we all share: Victim, Child, Saboteur and Prostitute and had truly spot on Reads.

Most students took all three workshops and were generous in their praise. Many Students huge shifts in how they were feeling: “Words cannot express all that is going on inside me to heal,” “we came away feeling renewed and consumed with a positive energy,” “You two are rock stars” “You had something truly helpful and positive for everyone.” “It was also magical to see others ‘get’ it as well.
You both are life savers and miracle workers! I appreciate you and all you do so much! “Since the workshops, I am truly happy for no reason.” “It’s absolutely amazing that when I think about my personal violations, and there were many, that I don’t feel the charge or upset like I did before Friday. I feel neutral.”

We are so grateful for the good energy and open minds our students bring to our events and their willingness to let go of old pain and and embrace a happier life. This is truly raising the vibration of our planet and bringing us closer to the tipping point of positivity.

We hope you are inspired to join us in person for our next healing workshops! We will be presenting more of these workshops so there are future opportunities for you to join in and experience the joy!–Dr. Rebecca Grace
